Highlight of Business Operations:During the quarter ended September 30, 2008, gross profit increased 9.0% to
$3,195,641, or 40.0% of net sales, compared to $2,932,312, or 37.2% of net
sales, in the quarter ended September 30, 2007. In the quarter ended September
30, 2007 gross profit as a percent of sales was lower than the current period
due to inventories of Dynatronics manufactured products in stock at the six
acquired independent dealers. Those inventories had a higher cost basis because
they were held in the dealer inventory at wholesale cost instead of manufactured
cost. This accounted for the approximately 2.8 percentage point difference
between gross profit in the current quarter and the similar period last year.

in the quarters ended September 30, 2008 and 2007, respectively. Management

physical medicine market in fiscal year 2009 and beyond in order to position the
Company for growth.
